We are moving this summer to a new area. The last time I did this I frequently had to stop of the side of the road, whip out my iphone, figure out where I was and how to get somewhere else.
So, what’s the best solution to make this easier?
I have a Garmin 510 and have been thinking about an upgrade to a 530 or 830. It souds like the 530 is the way to go as you only get a touch screen and a couple of other minor features on the 830. The 830 does allow you to route to an address so I’m not sure if this would be helpful as this is not how one typically rides a bike.
Routing - I’ve only used routing a couple of times on my 510. It’s a pain to find the right file type, manually upload it to the Garmin and all that. Is this more automated on newer Garmins since they have wifi?
Software? -I could pay for Strava’s routing or use some other site if it’s better/easier. I’ve never had a lot of luck with Strava heatmaps. There doesn’t seem to be any way to figure out the top 10 or 20 road loops of various distances in a town.
